    Really curious if any of you name your game room? With the building of our new game room finishing up, we decided to name this one. My current game room over the garage was never really named.

    Since we decided to name this one, I worked on a logo this weekend and started doing some stuff with my laser. I plan on making more koozies and coaster. Also thinking about making a big metal sign and back lighting it.

    No, mine doesn't have a theme. It's just a game room.

    I've seen some game rooms that are much more elaborate with a decorative theme that have been named.

    WildRover 's game room theme stands out in my mind.

    Ours is the "Endorphin Port". Didn't even think of getting signs but the breakers are labeled. Cool ideas!

    Funny, we are just going through this now, building out a cabinet of curiosity themed bar next to our game room, getting close to being done and we need a name.
    Problem is do we name the bar and game room different or just one name?
    I wanted BAller's Pinporeum and Bagatellery, but my wife hates it.
    Fun topic.

    I’m a farmer…

    How can I change the name of my gameroom in ‘insider connected’?
    Now it’s Pascal’s gameroom…

    Mine is jokingly called the Puzzle Room, because when I started building it, the wife said she wanted a pinball machine, I was gonna do a couple arcade machines, and after I spent a TON of money building it, she told me, she meant like a room to play games, and do puzzles… so as a joke, I had some metal flippers made with puzzle room on them, powder coated to match her Scooby Doo

    Several of the home game rooms that host New England Pinball League play (https://nepl.org/locations) are named.

    I don't have any signs or anything, but I refer to it as the Patrick County Strategic Pinball Reserve.

    My basement bar (where my games are located) is. Does that count?

    Depending upon your laser setup you can easily cut mirrors. This was a fun project.

    Ours is called "Ye Olde Pinballery".

    I have a couple of different ones. Even though the person that made the one sign didn't spell Emporium correctly it's still pretty cool. The other one was a old sign that I converted over to this etched glass and changed out the regular bulb for color changing LED's.

    I know I initially said House of Drain because that is all I do. The wide came up with House of Tilted Skills but I liked it without the s. We stuck to just naming the game room as it is our main reason for the room.

    Quoted from ZooDude:

    My last name is Aller and first name starts with B, so I figured I should use "baller" but it just doesn't roll off the tongue.

    I was thinking about doing one just like this. Although my laser can only do about 16"x29". I also have a plasma that I thought about cutting a large sign out.

    Phoebe's Pinball Palace but it's more like a pinball house, causes there a pins in pretty much every room. We mad the sign with flexible neon.Hubby made the frames and I painted them. When we added the "official" gameroom in 2018, we had plugs placed up there so we could hang the signs.

    My game room is named "Barkley's". It was bestowed this moniker by a good friend over a decade ago at my previous house's basement. I happened to have a Charles Barkley Starting Lineup figure just randomly on a shelf and we were watching NBA on TNT one particular evening and Charles was mouthing off. My friend then stared calling the basement pad "Barkley's" in honor of Sir Charles.
